The Associated Press reports Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears are both considering plans for doing syndicated talk shows that would hit airwaves in fall 2004. Bill Carroll of the media buying firm Katz Television Group indicated that both Spears and Lopez would have shows lending their name to the project while appearing certain days on the show. In J.Lo’s case, her sister and New York radio deejay Lynda would be included on a potential show.
‘Gigli’ Already On Cable?
August 6, 2003 – During his monologue on Tuesday, Late Show host David Letterman poked fun at the Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck starring ‘Gigli’, and J.Lo’s Madame Tussaud’s waxwork. Letterman joked, “It’s just hot, muggy and humid here in New York City. It’s just terrible, it’s so hot we’re withering – it’s so hot here that down at the wax museum they had to pack Jennifer Lopez’s ass in party ice. Have you seen the new J.Lo movie, ‘Gigli’? (silence and Dave laughs) Ok, well I went and saw it last night. I left early and when I got home it was already on cable.”
One Good Review For ‘Gigli’
August 6, 2003 – Stu Bykofsky of the Philadelphia Daily News saw the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez starring ‘Gigli’, and defended the film which he says was victim to “the product of ‘pack journalism’ on the part of snotty elitists who decided that Bennifer had risen too far, too fast and now it was their God-given duty to drop the pair.” His own thoughts on the flick? “I watched the movie in a theater with Bennifer’s core audience and they enjoyed it. I found ‘Gigli’ somewhat heavy-footed, with overwritten monologues, but light enough for summer.”
